The Supreme Court has junked the petition for the legalization of same-sex marriage as the lawyers involved thoroughly believed that there are no substantial arguments last Monday, January 6, 2019.
“The Court resolved to deny with finality the said motion for reconsideration as no substantial arguments were presented to warrant the reversal of the questioned decision.”
In line with this, veteran comedian and actress Ai-aA Delas Alas reacted to SC’s decision on her Instagram account with an emoji prayer.
Boy Abunda, Kris Aquino, Ai-Ai Delas Alas, Darren Espanto, Marian Rivera, Lucy Torres-Gomez, Melai Cantiveros, and Kakai Bautista are just some of the celebrities who are Marian devotees.
It can be recalled that Atty. Jesus Falcis III filed the petition to legalize same-sex marriage just two months after he passed the Philippine Bar. Ceejay Agbayani expressed his support and gratitude towards Falcis when the latter filed the petition.
Agbayani said, “Sabi ko, thank Jesus! I love Jesus, both Jesus the attorney and the historical Jesus. Finally, this guy, whom I’ve never met, meron din siyang pagnanasa for marriage equality, eh ang kulang lang naming, actually, attorney. Noon pa man gusto na naming mag Korte Supreme pero wala kaming attorney.”
Netizens shared their personal takes on Ai-Ai’s “homophobic” comments:
And? Ai ai delas alas literally muted herself and suspended her own right to free speech when she was looking for her deaf son in Tanging Ina in what was deemed to be the most elaborate act of characterization, meta-dialogue that demonstrated her technical excellence in her craft https://t.co/qgeFwucApl

Alam mo, Ai Ai, hindi ikaw yung kinakasal dun. So stop making it about you.
Also, you keep quoting the Bible yet forget what Jesus Himself had to say about divorce (Mar 10:11-12). Or who should not teach and just stay quiet (1 Tim 2:12).https://t.co/TNzW3HCWVF
